Latest figures show only 830,000 mainland tourists visited the lake in 2018, 1.42 million less than the figure in 2014.

Wang Yi-feng, a water resource official in Taiwan, said the drop was due to changes in cross-Strait relations in the past few years.

The Sun Moon Lake in central Taiwan is well-known to people on the mainland. It is often seen as one of the must-visit places on the island.
